1987) reported that laying hens at peak production fed diets containing an increasing level (0, 5 and 10%) of common vetch seed for a period of 4 mounths had linear decreases in yolk index but no changes in other egg quality parameters (egg weight, shape index, shell strength, albumen index, yolk color, Haugh unit, shell thickness, and shell weight).
The increase in egg weight appeared to result from increases in both albumen and yolk weight both of which increased linearly with increases in glycine supplementation.
To investigate the effects of storage time and temperature on albumen pH and HU and on egg quality parameters among the eggs separated into three storage times and three storage temperatures, STATISTIX software was used.
The results of egg components (yolk, albumen and shell), albumen and yolk pH, albumen height and Haugh unit were subjected to analysis of variance that included the main effects of garlic level and storage duration and their two-way interactions.
We know from the above discussion that addition of VE at 100 mg/kg in the broiler breeder diets significantly reduced egg weight, shell weight, albumen weight and egg yolk color score compared with VE of 20 mg/kg at the end of 8th week of experiment, but the reasons need further study.
Functional characteristics of egg white solids obtained from papain treated albumen.
2004) also noted that, with concurrent decreases in albumen pH, yolk firmness, yolk water content, and pH were increased with storage time and CLA content.
The egg qualities included eggshell strength and thickness, yolk color and weight, albumen height, and Haugh unit.
Parameters measured for egg quality were shape index, yolk index, albumen index, Haugh unit, egg shell thickness and egg shell weight.
Egg storage is related to the pH of the albumen due to loss of carbon dioxide (Dawes, 1975).
allergic reaction to albumen, a naturally occurring substance found in
The landscape so fascinated photographer Thomas Andrew that he produced an entire album of albumen and platinum prints entitled Scenes from Savaii.
